Distinct from other success or motivation books that emphasize skills, tactics, or pop gimmicks, Developing Unrelenting Drive, Dedication, and Determination digs deep into the theory and practice of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) to grow those qualities of character and personality that drive one to relentlessly do what is necessary to produce the great results one wants in life. Each chapter begins with an engaging discussion of that chapter’s theme, replete with interesting real-life examples. Then comes a detailed step-by-step workshop that contains guided exercises that aid readers in building that character trait in others or themselves. Provided next are three powerful intensifiers to strengthen and integrate the trait into one’s character structure. Following that are cogent suggestions to integrate that chapter’s character trait into an organization’s culture. Last, suggested readings are provided for those interested in further pursuing the building of that trait. Developing Unrelenting Drive, Dedication, and Determination is designed to instruct helping professionals in the REBT approach, to be a resource to work collaboratively with their patients or clients, and to be a sourcebook for the interested layperson.

If there is one name in the American equestrian story that everyone knows, it is George Morris. A horse lover, rider, carouser, competitor, taskmaster, dreamer, teacher, and visionary, George Morris has been ever-present on the rarified stage of the international riding elite for most of the 70 years he’s been in the saddle. He has represented our country as an athlete and a coach and, at one time or another, instructed many of our nation’s best horsemen and women. His carefully chosen, perfectly enunciated words are notoriously powerful. They can raise you up or cut you to the quick. His approval can be a rainmaker; his derision can end a career. But as much as people know and respect (or, perhaps, fear) the public face of George Morris, he has lived, in other ways, a remarkably private life, keeping his own personal struggles with insecurity, with ambition, and with love behind closed doors. It is only now that he has chosen, in his own words, to share the totality of his life—the very public and the incredibly private—with the world. This engrossing autobiography, the real story of the godlike George Morris, beautifully demonstrates his ultimate humanity.

This is a book about recovery. Not recovery from drugs, alcohol, or surgery, but recovery from the numerous and relentless demands we face in handling our everyday obligations. These demands take a toll on us. Regardless of whether they come from paid employment, caring for young children, looking after elderly parents, or trying to get through graduate school, our daily obligations weigh heavily on us. They deplete our energy. They drain us of motivation. They leave us feeling weary and exhausted. If you tend to feel worn out and want to know how to replenish yourself, this book is for you. We should be able to recover from our daily obligations during our downtime. But many of us don’t. In this book we will explain why downtime is inadequate for helping us recharge our batteries, and present you with an effective alternative. Recent scientific developments from around the globe have shed light on the processes that reverse the draining effects of our obligations and help us successfully recover in our leisure time. Not only that, research also reveals that when effective recovery occurs it not only recharges our batteries, but makes us feel happier, makes us healthier, and makes us better at handling the demands that drained us in the first place. We call this boosting to reflect the multi-pronged benefits of successful recovery. In this book we draw on the most cutting-edge science to explain how to transform our ineffective downtime into valuable uptime. Uptime is the time away from our obligations that successfully satisfies the factors that lead us to feel replenished, recharged, recovered, and gives us a boost. Praise for Boost: “Boost has deep implications for everyone” ~ From the Foreword by Shawn Achor, New York Times, bestselling author of Big Potential and The Happiness Advantage “This book is bound to change your life! Writing in an informative, and highly engaging style, Gruman and Healey bring to light a revolutionary new way of dealing with the intensity of everyday obligations. This is by far one of the most comprehensive integrations of modern science and seasoned wisdom in positive psychology. I highly recommend this book.” ~ Mirella De Civita, PhD President of Papillon MDC, Founder of Grand Heron International, author of The Courage to Fall into Life "'Boost' does just that! It gives you a lift! This book provides practical and encouraging examples of how to re-energize in the midst of our challenged and time pressured lives. An enjoyable and extremely beneficial read." ~ Chris Kotsopoulos CEO, Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada "Do you want to know how to recharge? Boost is a must read for you. This fantastic book helps those of us wanting to understand the impact of replenishing ourselves on enhancing our connections, productivity, and happiness, and provides strategies to seriously improve the quality of our lives." ~ Lola Bendana Director, Multi-Languages Corporation “In the age of doing more with less, what every busy working person needs most is proven, practical strategies for staying productive and focused. This book delivers. After all I’ve read and heard about the energy crisis in today’s workplace, Boost told me a lot I didn’t know—and will apply, starting now.” ~ Rona Maynard Former Editor of Chatelaine, Author of My Mother’s Daughter “In today’s world of smartphones, tablets, and relentless connectivity, it is almost impossible to find a reprieve from the stresses of our day to day lives. Gruman and Healey provide clear, well articulated, evidence-based guidance in their expertly written book. Boost is an essential read for anyone looking to live life to the fullest.” ~ Marie-Helene Budworth, PhD Associate Professor, School of Human Resource Management, York University

This book helps to explain why God sometimes bears long with His elect, it articulates God's purpose in the wait, expounds on how justice involves both restoration and restitution, and ignites faith to believe God to avenge us of our adversary. Not only is this message fresh from Bob's heart, we believe it is a message that is especially relevant to the body of Christ in this final hour.
